The Pit Nutters are already spewing the "Don't Blame the dogs..Blame the irresponsible owners".

I blame the breeder of these outrageously dangerous animals. When a dog is out of containment and comes across another living creature it has three choices to make:

Flee, Submit or Fight.

We all know which choice the American Pit Bull Terrier will make!

This man survived being a World War II tank driver then ends up getting "blown up" during a routine walk 60 years later.

Way to go Pit Bull Breeders!!!

One of the alleged owners of the dogs was a convicted sex offender, (living in the same home as the child, apparently).

Read the comments section, it will make you furious...there are neighbors insisting the dogs were wonderful, and just being protective of the children, and there are neighbors insisting the dogs were vicious. Most of the posters praise pit bulls for being wonderful pets and the incident is the result of "irresponsible owners".

I have to say, I live in a neighborhood where dogs get off leash all the time....we have labs, goldens, JRT, a setter, rat terrier, beagles, Cairn terrier, Westie, Airdales,a corgi, Min pins, and mutts. If one of the neighborhood dogs gets off leash and runs around, our biggest fear if for the dog...that it could be hit by a car! The Goldens are tethered, and often get loose and run through the neighborhood...they have "irresponsible" owners. The difference is, none of the family pets in my neighborhood pose any sort of threat to other people or their pets.

NO ONE in my neighborhood would feel threatened by one of the neighborhood dogs being loose. There is NO room in society for a breed of dog that kills people when it is "irresponsibly" owned, and gets off leash. Period. When will politicians understand this basic fact? If you need a PHD in applied animal behavior, a breakstick, an "escape proof enclosure", and advanced obedeince training to manage these dogs, they shouldn't exist in our communities as pets.

watch the video again and this time watch the adult with the child. his mouth is MOVING as the child speaks and blames the 90 yr old man for the attack!!! it is as if the boy is reciting a statement written by the father.

Probably reciting talking points downloaded from pit bull forum....

Dr. Peter Borchelt, PhD, a certified applied animal behaviorist testified in court that the level of danger to a human from multiple pit bulls engaging in an attack is exponential, not just a simply factor of multiplication as with any other breed of dog.

When will this carnage be recognized as a real-life "Jurassic Park" situation, one that demands preventative action, not just responsive prosecution of "irresponible dog owners", who can not be identified until AFTER their pit bulls attack?
